Comedy gold: CNN anchor in utter disbelief as Chicago is eliminated (video)
Hot Air ^ | Oct. 2, 2009

Posted on 10/02/2009 9:34:07 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

I’ll keep updating the other thread but this one’s too much fun to bury there. An instant classic, courtesy of Greg Hengler.

Update: While you watch, a question from John Miller to meditate on. I fear we all know the answer, my friends.

Chicago not only is out but they were the first to go out! They received the least amount of votes. I guess the Kool-Aid has worn off.

I just heard where Rahm Emanuel used TARP money to buy out the entire stock of the Fulton Fish Market. He wants to “send a message” to every member of the IOC.

The idea of the crowd in Chicago in utter shock makes me smile and think of the story of the crowd in Boston, election night 2004. Just google “Kerry party tears bitterness” and you should find it

Ah. There it is
http://www.rense.com/general59/bitterness.htm

>>A distraught woman confronted Democratic U.S. Rep. Harold Ford in the lobby of the Fairmont Copley Plaza Hotel and screamed, “Can you tell me why everybody made a mistake?”

Maybe there was one or two people in the Chicago crowd
with the same reaction

>>Another woman standing near Ford began to openly weep at the prospect of a Kerry loss.

HA HA!

>>Brian Henchey, one of the College Republicans marching through the crowd told CNSNews.com that he had “never seen more sad and depressed faces in my life than what I have seen here in Copley Square tonight.”

And in Chicago today—though as I understand it many in Chi are glad. Look at the papers and see the comments.

Or maybe let’s all just turn to a hit by Steam which became popular as a baseball cheer when Nancy Faust (I think that’s her name used to play it)

If you are the leader of a country and talk that country down, how stupid is that? It makes me think of that Stephen Wright quip:

“If you try to fail and succeed, what have you done?”

This is what Obama has done now....tried to fail (America) and succeeded in that. Doesn’t seem so smart now I bet.

Obama should get up there and bloviate some more. That should get the decision reversed.

From now on, President Obama is now the BIC - Bloviator in Chief.

Boston and Chicago.

Two once great American cities rotting from within due to the diseased liberal mindset.

When I think of those two cities, and California, I wonder how much more of Leftist insanity they can take before they completely collapse.

I am at a loss to explain how they remain viable.

The IOC knows how to do math:

0 + 0 (m) + 0 (oprah) = 0 as in no money and we already did the communist thing with beijing.

Winning an Olympic bid takes more than a pretty face. It’s very difficult to be competitive against other strong candidates.

A city has to demonstrate that it can construct the facilities and put on a successful event. My guess is the Chicago reps didn’t convince the voters that they had the stuff.

Too bad. It would have been a wonderful opportunity to raze a few square miles of the South Side for some new venues.

I was just thinking that if this happened under Bush, most Freepers would be pissed and say it was anti-Americanism that led to them not picking Chicago.

Since it’s Obama, it’s okay.

I admit to probably being the same way myself....

When Obama showed up in person, Chicago was probably toast.

If Chicago won, it would have looked like Obama successfully arm-twisted the IOC members. They can't afford to look like they are the US's minions.
